Borderline is a 1981 arcade game by Sega.[1] The player controls a Jeep and has to destroy enemy refineries. There are four stages with different gameplay. The first stage plays like a vertically scrolling shooter. In the second stage, the player maneuvers his Jeep through underbrush, and enemies can only follow on its path, a concept later found in Dig Dug.

Borderline was reissued later in the year with slightly altered graphics as Star Raker. It was a launch game for the SG-1000,[2] and converted for the Atari 2600 under the name Thunderground, released by Sega's home division.
